St Paul’s School / Daily Life

The current boarding house, School House, has capacity for thirty-five boys and forms part of the main school complex, enjoying fabulous river views over the Thames. Boys board at St Paul’s for a variety of reasons and this is a very popular option for 16+ candidates, offering a supportive environment which allows them to concentrate on their studies during the week.

We offer full boarding, weekly boarding (Sunday evening–Friday afternoon) and flexi-boarding, to suit a family’s individual requirements. Flexi-boarding allows day boys to board for a couple of days or a few weeks if, for example, parents are away for a period of time during the term.

Our small boarding house is predominately home to senior boys who join as full boarders at 16+ for their A level studies, often from overseas.

A small number of places may be available for Year 9 boys who are welcome as weekly boarders but must return to an approved guardian or family member every weekend. They cannot be full boarders. Boarding is not available for boys below Year 9.
